How the RePro can aid with injury.
JANUARY 8, 2021
The RePro has been designed to speed up your rehabilitation process, ensuring your injury time is reduced.
Many athletes have used the RePro as a part of their road to recovery! Jessica Rodarte said "with the gun having such a wide range of speed levels, you can get the right of pressure needed at the right time. For example, at the beginning of my injury I stuck to very low levels (1-6), and now I find the middle intensity (12-15) hits the right spot!"
Whether it's a running injury, or a muscle injury from the gym, using the RePro regularly on and around the injured muscle group will help by clearing lactic acid and increasing blood flow and oxygen to the muscles... allowing them to repair faster. Getting you back to what you love doing!
The best way to help an injury is to prevent an injury.
Injuries are common among everyone. However, there are things you can do to help prevent getting them. A 2014 study from the National Library of Medicine (https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25121012/) suggested that vibration therapy and massage (both of which are part of percussive therapy) are equally effective methods to prevent delayed onset muscle soreness. This means you're less likely to feel muscle pain or tightness 24 to 72 hours after an intense workout, ensuring you can workout again within this time period, with a reduced risk of injury due to tight or sore muscles.
Please note, we always recommend you consult your doctor or physio first before using your RePro post injury.
